ABOUT KINOE NO KOMATSU (THE YOUNG PINES or PINING FOR LOVE)
The following is paraphrased from Matthi Forrer's treatise Hokusai, Rizzoli, 1988. Forrer is the curator of the Japanese Department of the National Museum of Ethnology, Leiden, Holland, and has published numerous books on the arts of Japan.

"of furious-looking copulations, screens in a bedroom knocked aside in the heat of mating, a confusion of bodies hopelessly entwined, outstretched arms at once welcoming and repelling coitus, the palpitations of women's abdomens, the frenzy of curled feet flailing the air, devouring kisses on the mouth, women swooning, their heads thrown back on the ground in a dead faint with eyes closed under heavily-painted lids and that force, that energy of outline in the drawing of a phallus that makes it comparable to the hand in the Louvre Museum attributed to Michelangelo."

These lines were inspired by three albums of magnificent prints by Hokusai; they are entitled Kinoe no Komatsu, (The Young Pines) and were published circa 1814.
